JSA’s abilities directly align with THA’s and HealthSHARE’s objectives of offering Texas hospitals with resources to drive cost avoidance and operational efficiency.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
The Texas Hospital Association announced today the endorsement of Jackson Surgical Assistants as its exclusive service provider to the Texas hospital community for surgical assistant practice management.
JSA is the first nationwide practice management company exclusively focused on the surgical assistant profession. JSA provides:
- High-quality surgical assisting services;
- consistent, reliable case coverage;
- lower cost than a hospital typically incurs.
Recognizing that approximately one third of all surgeries use the services of a surgical assistant, JSA has a meaningful impact on lowering surgical team costs, contributing to positive patient outcomes and maximizing the surgeon’s experience at the facility. JSA not only drives cost efficiency and quality but also seeks to enhance the hospital’s competitiveness by creating surgeon preference for the facility.
“JSA’s abilities directly align with THA’s and HealthSHARE’s objectives of offering Texas hospitals with resources to drive cost avoidance and operational efficiency,” said Jim Dixon, president/chief executive officer of HealthSHARE, the marketing subsidiary of THA.
“JSA is thrilled to introduce our service to Texas,” said Paul Foster, president of Jackson Surgical Assistants. “Texas is a special market for surgical assisting with licensure across credentials. The JSA model gives surgeons and the hospital an opportunity to create a unified, consistent service solution to serve all surgeons and patients requiring this level of support.”
JSA works with client hospitals to confirm a custom service strategy for surgical assisting, including service level to surgeons, pricing / cost avoidance and key program metrics. JSA takes responsibility for the employees and the surgical assisting function.
